I think we owe these guys some credit for what happened in Alabama

Young people in the South are listening to these guys and it's having an impact. Minus these fellows that 1.5% we won by in Alabama might not have occurred:

So if Mueller is fired then what is the procedure from the FBI involved in the case?

What occurred during Watergate? Or would this be different somehow?

Wonderful post from a friend on Facebook


Recently saw a few posts from folks in my news feed about how sick and tired they are of political correctness. Here's the deal . . .The actual definition of political correctness is the avoidance of rhetoric or actions that alienate, demean, discriminate, or disrespect underprivileged, oppressed, or marginalized groups. If you can't step up your game in order to not alienate, marginalize or oppress groups, then fuck off.

Study: Obama tax hikes on the rich didn't hurt economy, or the rich

This is what Democrats need to be saying over and over and over and over!!!!!! Why don't they???? The wealthy still do incredibly well under Democratic tax policies so why not have a tax system that works for everyone, not just the 1% by stimulating the economy from the bottom and middle up?


The top 1 percent of earners managed to increase their share of the nation's income at about the same pace after their taxes were raised as they had before, according to the study , released Thursday by Emmanuel Saez, an economics professor at University of California at Berkeley.

Architect of Reagan's tax cuts reminds us that tax cuts don't stimulate the economy


the "prosperity" of the 1980s is grossly overstated (GDP growth in the 1980s was weaker than in the 1970s); that the Reagan years ended with a series of unprecedented market crashes and a deep recession; that Clinton's tax increases ended the recession; that GWB enacted near-annual cuts that coincided with collapsing GDP growth and federal revenues (and that growth returned when Obama allowed the Bush cuts to start expiring) and so on.

So can anything be done about this fucking tax scam if Dems get control of the House and Senate

next year? I am guessing we would need 2/3rd majority though, meaning we are fucked? So we are looking at 2021 before anything can realistically be done and the debt will have already skyrocketed by then?

Guessing there is at least some dirt on Fox News contributors in the emails

You know the Trump team was communicating with Fox News and many over there are viciously attacking Mueller. More on the attack than I would have thought because I don't think a lot of them there like Trump.

Could be interesting to see what more unravels. Wouldn't it be great if much of the Republican propaganda infrastructure came crashing down in this?
